Think Pink!

I’ve spent the week cheering on my mom as she completed her first cycle of chemotherapy. She’s had four treatments and will start a new chemotherapy in two weeks. To say she has been a trooper is an understatement. I’m so proud of her! To “celebrate” the completion of part of this journey, I’m sharing this pink number! It’s the perfect casual outfit with flares of patterns and pops of bright color – I feel like that could also describe my personality haha. I love, love, love the top – it’s ridiculously inexpensive and I’m fan-girling over these Guess sunglasses. You can shop this outfit below!

I’ve worn this outfit all over the place the last few weeks. I’ve had tons of questions and compliments on the top and I completely understand why! It’s such a functional piece that can transform from casual to dressy with just a few accessory changes. I’m in the short rows of wearing cute clothes everyday since the fall dance season starts in a week. Once I’m back at the studio full time, it’s athletic clothes all day everyday for me! So, I’m definitely going to make the most of it while I can. On a real note, these shoes are a dream. I’ve already told my mom I going to wear them on my wedding day, whenever that may be lol. They are more comfortable than any of my tennis shoes and look so similar to one of my favorite designer’s loafer pumps. I got them from TJMaxx for a STEAL! Happy Eclipse day everyone, don’t look at the sun!!!

The Best Pink Sweater Ever

I know it’s July. I also know that when I took these pictures it was around 98 degrees, but it’s never too early to think about Fall right?! I styled this bubblegum pink Express Sweater that I purchased from Rugged Warehouse with some of my favorite jeans ever from Gap Factory Store. My sweater reminds me so much of this sweater from Express. I also paired them with these Lucky Brand booties that I purchased last season. My necklace is from Jane.com and my earrings are from It’s Fashion Metro. I think this is a great casual outfit for this coming Fall!

Lazy Day – Atheleisure Outfit

IMG_5568lazy 2lazy 3

It’s a new week y’all and I’m sharing an outfit like I’ve never shared before! There is an AMAZING trend going around called “Atheleisure”. It’s a modge-podge of athletic and leisure attire. Going to the gym? Atheleisure. Going to the grocery store? Atheleisure. Going for a run? Atheleisure. Taking a nap? Atheleisure. It’s always the answer. As a dance teacher, I basically live in athletic attire, even when I haven’t been “athletic”. This is one of my favorite outfits.

I found these amazing cropped leggings from Target and I die for the white color blocking. This precious graphic “lazy day” shirt is from Rugged Warehouse, but is by Express. It’s longer in the back, so I love it for teaching! My favorite tennis shoes are Nike’s and are literally 5 years old. They don’t have laces and are the most comfortable get-ups ever – I think they are called Free Runs.

What’s one of your favorite fashion trends right now?
